Every year we spring clean our homes and gardens, by throwing things away and cleaning places we neglect over the year.
But how many of us spring clean our skincare and makeup?
Check our labels and expiry dates?
Not much of us, every year I throw away skincare or makeup I've had for sometime and replace it with brand new products, things like:
Eyeshadow, lipsticks, lipglosses, skincare that I've had for more than 12 months ect...
Here's a time frame for some products:
Mascara 2-3 months
Eyeliner 6-12 months
Foundation 12-24 months
Lipstick/Lipgloss up to 2 years
Eyeshadow/Blush 2 years
Skincare can last up to 6-12 months but specific products can vary, but in general unopened skincare can last from 1-3 years. After opening a product you should always use as directed promptly, within 1 year. Always throw away a product if it seems discoloured, develops a strange odour or the consistency changes (becomes lumpy, runny ect....)
so since it's April now is the time to have a look through and see if your makeup or skincare needs to be thrown out.
